The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt

Updated on October 17, 2014

Where's That Music Coming From?

When you enter the room, do trumpets announce your presence? When you tell a joke does everyone understand they should laugh? No? Then maybe you need a personal soundtrack t-shirt.

This t-shirt has a speaker right on its front, so you can play music, laugh reels, even sound effects whenever you want to!

Add a little pizazz to your next joke or liven up your next boring family gathering. It's definitely a great conversation starter! And it makes a great gift too!

The Perfect Gift

This shirt makes a great gift for those hard to shop for people. Give them the shirt with the preloaded songs, or you can also get some fun sound effects for it as well. It will definitely make the day so much more fun!

A Very Cool Shirt

Geeky and cool, this shirt is so funny! Okay, I had to make a page on this shirt as soon as I saw it.

This shirt is designed to play sound effects and music whenever you choose. The noise comes out of a speaker in the middle of the chest and is trigger by a connected remote control that you can leave hanging from the shirt or tuck into your pocket.

There are 20 sound effects and sound bites loaded in it when you get it, but you can add up to 20 different MP3s on an SD card that you slide into the unit. The MP3s need to be named 03.mp3 or 19.mp3 or anything in between one and twenty because then the shirt knows to play 03.mp3 when you press the number 3 on the remote. You can also make the MP3s do continuous loops by adding an "L" to the end of the file name, so putting 04L.mp3 will put track 4 on a continuous loop. Full instructions on adding your own songs and sound effects are included with the shirt. You can also just use the sound effects included with the shirt if you wish.

By purchasing a special headphone cable, you can even connect the unit to your iPod or other MP3 player if you want, and play your music right through your shirt. That will make it will work as a speaker for your MP3s.

Details About the Shirt

The t-shirt comes in several different sizes. All have a speaker on the front and a remote, and are pre-programmed with 20 sound effects and sound clips.

It uses 4 AAA batteries that are not included

Requires the purchase of a male to male headphone cable to play your iPod or other MP3 player using the speaker

If you want to play your own music, you'll need to use your MP3 player or place the music on an SD card

The speaker is made of plastic, and is not incredibly sturdy. I wouldn't think anyone would want to play football in the shirt, but if you did, the speaker probably wouldn't hold up to it.

To wash the shirt you need to unplug the battery pack and remote from the shirt, peel off the Velcro-attached speaker and unplug the cable from it (the cable can be left inside the shirt). Then hand wash or run it on the gentle cycle in the washer. Hang to dry or tumble it dry on low. About what you would expect.

The Soundtrack T-shirt seems like it would be a very fun gag gift, or something to wear occasionally when you want to be the life of the party or just play around. I don't think it would be great to have it a hugely regular part of your wardrobe. Obviously, it's not really made for something like that. But it would be great to have around and toss on whenever you want to have a little fun.

      @abarth76 lm: Yes, it can be washed. The cords should be unplugged first.
